Distillation in a boreal mossy forest floor


Distillation in a boreal mossy forest floor



Canadian Journal of Forest Research 33(4): 663-671

The feathermoss-dominated floor of coniferous boreal forests can experience midsummer drought. From ecophysiological studies, based on single shoots, it is unclear how the live moss carpet can survive such stress. External capillary wicking from the lowest, moist organic layers is one possibility. Another is evaporation from the same source followed by condensation on the upper, live moss shoots (distillation).
